Virginia H. Mannering:  (202)  606-5304                                       BEA 06-02
Recorded message:       (202)  606-5306


                        GROSS DOMESTIC PRODUCT:  FOURTH QUARTER 2005 (ADVANCE)


    Real gross domestic product -- the output of goods and services produced by labor and property
located in the United States -- increased at an annual rate of 1.1 percent in the fourth quarter of 2005,
according to advance estimates released by the Bureau of Economic Analysis.  In the third quarter, real
GDP increased 4.1 percent.
 
    The Bureau emphasized that the fourth-quarter "advance" estimates are based on source data that
are incomplete or subject to further revision by the source agency (see the box on page 3).  The fourth-
quarter "preliminary" estimates, based on more comprehensive data, will be released on February 28,
2006.

    The major contributors to the increase in real GDP in the fourth quarter primarily reflected positive
contributions from private inventory investment, personal consumption expenditures (PCE), equipment
and software, exports, and residential fixed investment that were partly offset by a negative contribution
from federal government spending.  Imports, which are a subtraction in the calculation of GDP,
increased.

    The deceleration in real GDP growth in the fourth quarter primarily reflected a deceleration in
PCE, an acceleration in imports, a downturn in federal government spending, and decelerations in
equipment and software and in residential fixed investment that were partly offset by an upturn in
private inventory investment. 

    Final sales of computers contributed 0.33 percentage point to the fourth-quarter growth in real
GDP after contributing 0.16 percentage point to the third-quarter growth.  Motor vehicle output
subtracted 0.58 percentage point from the fourth-quarter growth in real GDP after contributing 0.56
percentage point to the third-quarter growth.  

    The price index for gross domestic purchases, which measures prices paid by U.S. residents,
increased 3.3 percent in the fourth quarter, compared with an increase of 4.2 percent in the third. 
Excluding food and energy prices, the price index for gross domestic purchases increased 2.9 percent in
the fourth quarter, compared with an increase of 2.5 percent in the third.   


FOOTNOTE.--Quarterly estimates are expressed at seasonally adjusted annual rates, unless otherwise
specified.  Quarter-to-quarter dollar changes are differences between these published estimates.  Percent
changes are calculated from unrounded data and are annualized.  "Real" estimates are in chained (2000)
dollars.  Price indexes are chain-type measures.

             This news release is available on BEA's Web site at www.bea.gov/bea/rels.htm.
                                  
                                  
Real personal consumption expenditures increased 1.1 percent in the fourth quarter, compared with an
increase of 4.1 percent in the third.  Durable goods purchases decreased 17.5 percent, in contrast to an
increase of 9.3 percent.  Nondurable goods purchases increased 5.1 percent, compared with an increase
of 3.5 percent.  Services expenditures increased 3.2 percent, compared with an increase of 3.3 percent.
                                  
Real nonresidential fixed investment increased 2.8 percent in the fourth quarter, compared with an
increase of 8.5 percent in the third.  Nonresidential structures increased 0.7 percent, compared with an
increase of 2.2 percent.  Equipment and software increased 3.5 percent, compared with an increase of
10.6 percent.  Real residential fixed investment increased 3.5 percent, compared with an increase of 7.3
percent.
                                  
Real exports of goods and services increased 2.4 percent in the fourth quarter, compared with an
increase of 2.5 percent in the third.  Real imports of goods and services increased 9.1 percent, compared
with an increase of 2.4 percent.
                                  
Real federal government consumption expenditures and gross investment decreased 7.0 percent in the
fourth quarter, in contrast to an increase of 7.4 percent in the third.  National defense decreased 13.1
percent, in contrast to an increase of 10.0 percent.  Nondefense increased 6.9 percent, compared with an
increase of 2.4 percent.  Real state and local government consumption expenditures and gross
investment increased 0.4 percent, compared with an increase of 0.2 percent.
                                  
The real change in private inventories added 1.45 percentage points to the fourth-quarter change in real
GDP after subtracting 0.43 percentage point from the third-quarter change.  Private businesses increased
inventories $25.7 billion in the fourth quarter, following decreases of $13.3 billion in the third quarter
and $1.7 billion in the second.
                                  
Real final sales of domestic product -- GDP less change in private inventories -- decreased 0.3 percent in
the fourth quarter, in contrast to an increase of 4.6 percent in the third.
                                  
                                  
Gross domestic purchases
                                  
Real gross domestic purchases -- purchases by U.S. residents of goods and services wherever produced -
- increased 2.2 percent in the fourth quarter, compared with an increase of 4.0 percent in the third.
                                  
                                  
Disposition of personal income
                                  
Current-dollar personal income increased $231.6 billion (9.4 percent) in the fourth quarter, compared
with an increase of $45.3 billion (1.8 percent) in the third.  The acceleration in personal income partly
reflected a rebound from the third-quarter impacts of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.  Rental income and
proprietors' income were reduced by the uninsured property damage caused by the hurricanes, and
current transfer receipts were increased by insurance settlements related to the hurricanes.  For more
information, see the FAQs on "Disasters" on BEA's Web site.
                                  
Personal current taxes increased $18.4 billion in the fourth quarter, compared with an increase of $9.9
billion in the third.
                                  
Disposable personal income increased $213.2 billion (9.8 percent) in the fourth quarter, compared with
an increase of $35.4 billion (1.6 percent) in the third.  Real disposable personal income increased 7.0
percent, in contrast to a decrease of 2.0 percent.
                                  
                                  
Personal outlays increased $87.7 billion (3.9 percent) in the fourth quarter, compared with an increase of
$172.7 billion (7.9 percent) in the third.  Personal saving -- disposable personal income less personal
outlays -- was a negative $33.3 billion in the fourth quarter, compared with a negative $158.9 billion in
the third.  The personal saving rate -- saving as a percentage of disposable personal income --   increased
from a negative 1.8 percent in the third quarter to a negative 0.4 percent in the fourth.  Saving from
current income may be near zero or negative when outlays are financed by borrowing (including
borrowing financed through credit cards or home equity loans), by selling investments or other assets, or
by using savings from the previous periods.  For more information, see the FAQs on "Personal Saving"
on BEA's Web site.
                                  
                                  
Current-dollar GDP
                                  
Current-dollar GDP -- the market value of the nation's output of goods and services -- increased 4.2
percent, or $129.6 billion, in the fourth quarter to a level of $12,735.3 billion.  In the third quarter,
current-dollar GDP increased 7.6 percent, or $227.7 billion.
                                  
                                  
2005 GDP
                                  
Real GDP increased 3.5 percent in 2005 (that is, from the 2004 annual level to the 2005 annual level),
compared with an increase of 4.2 percent in 2004.
                                  
The major contributors to the increase in real GDP in 2005 were personal consumption expenditures
(PCE), equipment and software, exports, and residential fixed investment.  Imports, which are a
subtraction in the calculation of GDP, increased in 2005.
                                  
The deceleration in real GDP in 2005 primarily reflected a downturn in private inventory investment
and decelerations in PCE and in federal government spending that were partly offset by a deceleration in
imports.
                                  
The price index for gross domestic purchases increased 3.2 percent in 2005, compared with an increase
of 2.9 percent in 2004.
                                  
Current-dollar GDP increased 6.4 percent, or $745.1 billion, in 2005.  Current-dollar GDP increased 7.0
percent, or $763.1 billion, in 2004.
                                  
During 2005 (that is, measured from the fourth quarter of 2004 to the fourth quarter of 2005), real GDP
increased 3.1 percent.  Real GDP increased 3.8 percent during 2004.  The price index for gross domestic
purchases increased 3.4 percent during 2005, the same increase as during 2004.

             Gross Domestic Product:  Fourth Quarter 2005 (Preliminary)
                                                       
                                   

                                  
                                  
		                    Comparisons of Revisions to GDP
                                                                         
   Quarterly estimates of GDP are released on the following schedule: "Advance" estimates, based on source data
that are incomplete or subject to further revision by the source agency, are released near the end of the first month
after the end of the quarter; as more detailed and more comprehensive data become available, "preliminary" and
"final" estimates are released near the end of the second and third months, respectively.  The "latest" estimates reflect
the results of both annual and comprehensive revisions.

   Annual revisions, which cover the quarters of the 3 most recent calendar years, are usually carried out each
summer and incorporate more comprehensive data including annual surveys.  Comprehensive (or benchmark) revisions
are carried out at about 5-year intervals and incorporate major periodic source data, as well as improvements in
concepts and methods that update the accounts to portray more accurately the evolving U.S. economy.

   The table below shows comparisons of the revisions between quarterly percent changes of current-dollar and
real GDP for the different vintages of the estimates.  From the advance estimate to the preliminary estimate (one
month later), the average revision to real GDP without regard to sign is 0.5 percentage point, while from the advance
estimate to the final estimate (two months later), it is 0.6 percentage point.  From the advance estimate to the latest
estimate, the average revision without regard to sign is 1.3 percentage points.  The average revision (with regard to
sign) from the advance estimate to the latest estimate is 0.4 percentage point, which is larger than the average
revisions from the advance estimate to the preliminary or to the final estimates.  The larger average revisions to the
latest estimate reflect the fact that comprehensive revisions include major improvements such as the introduction of
chain indexes and the capitalization of software.  The quarterly estimates correctly indicate the direction of change of
real GDP 98 percent of the time, correctly indicate whether it is accelerating or decelerating 74 percent of the time,
and correctly indicate whether real GDP growth is above, near, or below trend growth more than three-fifths of the
time.

  Note.--Users are cautioned that particularly for components that
exhibit rapid change in prices relative to other prices in the
economy, the chained-dollar estimates should not be used to measure
the component's relative importance or its contribution to the
growth rate of more aggregate series.  For accurate estimates of
the contributions to percent changes in real GDP, use table 2.

computer parts.
  2. Farm output less intermediate goods and services purchased.
  3. Consists of GDP less gross value added of farm, of
households and institutions, and of general government.
  4. This index is a supplemental measure that is based on household
expenditures for which there are observable price measures.  It
excludes most implicit prices (for example, the services furnished
without payment by financial intermediaries) and the expenses of
nonprofit institutions.

     Explanatory Note: NIPA Measures of Quantities and Prices


     Current-dollar GDP is a measure of the market value of goods, services, and structures produced in
the economy in a particular period.  Changes in current-dollar GDP can be decomposed into quantity and
price components.  Quantities, or "real" measures, and prices are expressed as index numbers with the
reference year -- at present, the year 2000 -- equal to 100. 

     Annual changes in quantities and prices are calculated using a Fisher formula that incorporates
weights from two adjacent years.  (Quarterly changes in quantities and prices are calculated using a
Fisher formula that incorporates weights from two adjacent quarters; quarterly indexes are adjusted for
consistency to the annual indexes before percent changes are calculated.)  For example, the 2003-04
annual percent change in real GDP uses prices for 2003 and 2004 as weights, and the 2003-04 annual
percent change in GDP prices uses quantities for 2003 and 2004 as weights.  These annual changes are
"chained" (multiplied) together to form time series of quantity and price indexes.  Percent changes in
Fisher indexes are not affected by the choice of reference year.  (BEA also publishes a measure of the
price level known as the implicit price deflator (IPD), which is calculated as the ratio of the
current-dollar value to the corresponding chained-dollar value, multiplied by 100.  The values of the IPD
are very close to the values of the corresponding "chain-type" price index.)

     Index numbers of quantity and price indexes for GDP and its major components are presented in this
release in tables 5 and 6. Percent changes from the preceding period are presented in tables 1, 4, 7, and 8.
Contributions by major components to changes in real GDP are presented in table 2.  

     Measures of real GDP and its major components are also presented in dollar-denominated form,
designated "chained (2000) dollar estimates."  For most series, these estimates, which are presented in
table 3, are computed by multiplying the current-dollar value in 2000 by a corresponding quantity index
number and then dividing by 100.  For example, if a current-dollar GDP component equaled $100 in
2000 and if real output for this component increased 10 percent in 2001, then the chained (2000) dollar
value of this component in 2001 would be $110 (= $100 x 110 / 100). Percent changes calculated from
chained-dollar estimates and from chain-type quantity indexes are the same; any differences will be small
and due to rounding.  

     Chained-dollar values for the detailed GDP components will not necessarily sum to the chained-dollar
estimate of GDP (or to any intermediate aggregate). This is because the relative prices used as weights
for any period other than the reference year differ from those of the reference year. A measure of the
extent of such differences is provided by a "residual" line, which indicates the difference between GDP
(or other major aggregate) and the sum of the most detailed components in the table.  For periods close to
the reference year, when there usually has not been much change in the relative prices that are used as
weights, the residuals tend to be small, and the chained-dollar estimates can be used to approximate the
contributions to growth and to aggregate the detailed estimates.  For periods further from the reference
year, the residuals tend to be larger, and the chained-dollar estimates are less useful for analyses of
contributions to growth.  Thus, the contributions to percent change shown in table 2 provide a better
measure of the composition of GDP growth.  In particular, for components for which relative prices are
changing rapidly, calculation of contributions using chained-dollar estimates may be misleading even just
a few years from the reference year.
